My nabi dreamtab wont reset why?


There are two types of resets that you can perform on nabi - forced reboot and factory reset. In the unlikely event that your nabi becomes unresponsive, you can easily perform a forced reboot. A factory reset is recommended when slow performance persists or if you want to wipe out all of your personal data and settings from nabi. Forced Reboot: To perform a forced reboot, hold the Power Button down until nabi turns off. When nabi is off, press the Power Button to turn on nabi again. Factory Reset: Caution! A factory reset is a very serious process because it will SYSTEMATICALLY WIPE ALL USER DATA from nabi. A factory reset will return nabi to its original factory settings.To perform a factory reset from Mommy/Daddy Mode, tap All Apps > Settings > Backup & reset > Factory data reset > Reset tablet > Erase everything. Please note: We highly recommend backing up your nabi prior to performing a factory reset. You can back up your music, videos, photos and apps with nabi™ Sync.

How do i undo a mater reset on my cell phone


You can't reverse a master reset. Once it's reset to factory that's it.

Master resets wipe the phone back to clean factory settings. Once wiped. It's done.

How do i reset my password for my belkin router


Hi Andrew,
If you have not entered a password before during the setup, you wouldn't need one and could leave the password field blank and still get in to the router.
If you have entered a password and forgotten it, then you'll have to do a factory rest. Unfortunately this will wipe all the data and put it back to factory status.

Setup steps:


  1. Locate the reset hole on the router. The button will be on the back or side of the router.
  2. Leave the router powered on.
  3. Use a paperclip (or similar) to press and hold in the reset button for 10 seconds.
  4. Remove the paperclip.
  5. Wait approximately one minute for the router to restart.
  6. The settings for the router have now been reset back to their default.

There is a photo on the belkin website which will help if you cannot find the reset hole:
